Lipoma is an extremely common and ubiquitous benign soft tissue tumor composed of mature adipose tissue, with frequent differentiation towards other mesenchymal elements such as blood vessels, fibrous tissue, or muscle. They are typically slow-growing, encapsulated, superficial or deep, and have a wide range in size depending on their location. The presence of cartilage or bone is very rare, with most reported cases in the head and neck area. We report the case of an osteochondrolipoma of the submandibular region with associated benign bone marrow elements, with a review of the literature and discussion of the differential diagnosis.
